The good news just keeps rolling in
Wednesday, November 08, 2006
The dictionary calls a rumor, "a circulating story or report of uncertain or doubtful truth." And I've always leaned more towards the latter in terms of validity. And what I have to say about decree 268 is not (in my opinion) a rumor. I'd say more like hearsay or even a speculation. In other words, information that is currently unconfirmed or not yet official.

Thank you professor, can you get to your rumor...er...hearsay...ah...speculation...oh just get on with it.

Government Decision #268 is done.

Really? Are you sure?

Although the "official" announcement by the MOE will not be done until next week, a large number of agencies have been told that 268 was completed and signed by all those needing to sign it. The official announcement (which will also be posted on the Russian government's website) is scheduled for next week.

This of course means that the rules for (or steps to get) accreditation are done and thus agencies now can officially apply for accreditation. And it is a common belief by most agencies that the accreditation process will be relatively short (meaning more like just a few weeks rather than several months).

So my own speculation is that our agency will get reaccredited by the end of November.

    Please let us know if the Bat Phone yields any hopeful news today!

    I'm crossing everything I've got that these rumors end up being true but trying to engage the grey cells. But the red cells (of the heart) or desperately trying to overtake!

    Happy Happy News!

    Maybe you will need all the winter clothes afterall.

    Praying for the re-accreditations to start pouring in.
